fredsegal: Mine's just delaminated in a daily driver so I'll glue it down with some 3M trim adhesive. If yours needs re-upholstery, Markel's Auto Interiors on No. La Cieniga in L.A. does a lot of Mercedes and has seen every problem imaginable. Dennis Hauswirth is the owner and a good guy. I actually haven't seen the shredding problem, but this SoCal sun sure wreaks havoc with the Teutonic foam and trim adhesives, doesn't it? It seems like all of them have some adherance problem after a few years.
